Question Favorite Organized Crime / Mob Flicks?

What up yall, I'm new here. Longtime Wu fan. Anyway, everyone knows that mob/mafia flicks are some of the best movies ever made. My question is, what are your favorites?

Mine are Godfather 2, Casino, and Donnie Brasco. Goodfellas is fuckin' great too though.

Godfather 2 just can't be touched in my eyes. Pacino is the fucking MAN as Michael Corleone. Anyone who thinks Tony Montana is the ultimate Pacino character is sadly mistaken.

Casino's got a hell of a cast and is damn near perfect. Donnie Brasco too. Gotta love true stories.

Of course, there's other great flicks.. King of New York, Resivior Dogs, Pulp Fiction, etc...

What's your favorites?

Scarface.

Godfathers i love but they lacked violence to appeal to the masses more. They shoulda took the risk.

^^^Scarface is overrated to me...aiight: Nino Brown vs. Tony Montana--who'd win in a fight? IMO, Nino has more streetfighting experience, and in real life, Wesley Snipes would kick Pacino's ass...I'm going with Nino.

Scarface is mad overrated. It's a tight flick, but kids act like it's the greatest just cause hip-hop artists praise it.

Like I said, Michael Corleone shits on Tony Montana.

To the guy who dissed The Godfather for "not having enough violence", thereby not appealing to the masses... how dense are you? Violence makes a flick good?
